My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of:
Custodial called cps on me on mental abuse allegations. My son was staying with me this week after not seeing him for two months due to the pandemic. He was sneezing too loud and I told him to stop doing it or he would get grounded. He didn’t stop and I took his phone away and put him on time out on the floor and his hands up. I saw him using the phone and hit him but not bruised at all.
He texted mom saying he needed help and called her screaming saying to pick him up. She called the police and took him away from me.
Today I find out she filed a report with cps saying that I’ve been mentally abusing my child. Her statements were regarding the time out and that I put him on time out if he name stepmom “mom” and badmouths about mom over the phone.
She’s claiming my son is traumatized because of me.
I only told my son to stop calling someone who is not his family mom, they claim that because she had him for more then six yr and have financially care of him she has right, which she does not.
Mom thinks I got mad because my son was speaking with stepmom as shes the one whos doing homeschooling with him. But that’s not true.
What could happen with cps? Will I lose visitation?
